Contract users in Asia and Australasia are set to gather online on 13-15 July for the latest Official FIDIC Contract Users’ Conference.

The Official FIDIC Contract Users’ Conference (Asia and Australasia time zone event) is being staged online and delivered in-house by FIDIC on 13-15 July 2021. The three-day conference is a must-attend event for all those working with FIDIC contracts in Asia and Australasia and bookings are open now.

This event, targeting both the Asia and Australasia contract users’ community, offers a unique opportunity to share progress on the application and use of FIDIC contracts internationally and across the region and will include participation from MDBs, private sector organisations and clients, government, engineers, contractors, investors, consultants, and other stakeholders who have an interest in FIDIC contracts.  

Day 1 of the conference on Tuesday 13 July (FIDIC Contracts - current state of play, latest developments and future plans) will offer delegates a comprehensive overview of the current state of play regarding FIDIC’s market-leading contract documents and includes an update on planned new contracts in the pipeline and the latest news on new initiatives and developments underway.

The first day of the conference will also take a look at the latest regional developments on FIDIC contracts and also highlight how to best use them to improve project procurement. The day will be rounded off with an ‘Ask the FIDIC contracts committee’ Q&A where delegates will be able to quiz the members of the committee on any and all matters related to FIDIC contracts.

Day 2 of the conference on Wednesday 14 July 2021 (Where are the clients and the Contractors in the ASPAC region and what are they doing? Best Practices) will focus on the multilateral development banks (MDBs) and their use of FIDIC contracts across the Asian and Australasia region.

Leading representatives from the MDBs, including the Asian Infrastructure Development Bank, Islamic Development Bank, Asian Development Bank and World Bank will offer their perspectives on the contracts they are using and how they are using them. Day 2 will also see key clients and contractors from the region giving an update on their use of FIDIC contracts and offering their views.

Day 3 on Thursday 15 July 2021 (Innovation & Disruption, where the changes are coming from) will examine how innovation, disruption and change are affecting future project delivery, especially in the technology area, and how FIDIC contracts might need to adapt to take account of these changes.

There will also be a session on how the Covid pandemic has impacted the industry and the role of FIDIC contracts in supporting users through challenging times. Speakers will also look at dispute avoidance and resolution trends during the pandemic and there will also be a must-attend session on the role of dispute avoidance and adjudication boards and how these are working in practice across the region.

Places at the conference cost €275 for the full three days and there is a 10% discount for two or more participants attending from the same company.
